Enter the Gungeon, Yooka Laylee, and More Hit Switch in Indie Wave

The eShop got a big boost this week.

News by Mike Williams, .

If you're a Nintendo Switch owner, this week the eShop is doing its best to drain your wallet dry. A number of titles from independent developers have hit the Switch this week. It presents a bit of a dilemma.

Key titles include Enter the Gungeon [Our Review], a roguelike dungeon crawler where you fight against weapons in order to get more weapons. The game is simple, with just shooting and dodging as your primary means of interaction, but you'll find the difficulty in surviving tense firefights. Yooka-Laylee [Our Review] is the Banjo-Kazooie successor players never got from Rare. Explore a bright, colorful world as the lizard Yooka and her bat companion Laylee.

Romancing Saga 2 is also getting a revival on Nintendo Switch. The game comes out tomorrow, December 15, and is a fully-localized version of the Super Famicom classic. Outside of the mobile ports, we've never received this game in English, so if you're up for a bit of retro role-playing action, look it up. SNK's other samurai fighter, The Last Blade, is also seeing a release as part of the Arcade Classics Neo-Geo collection.

The rest of the games coming to the eShop this week includes:

Remember, if you pick up any of these games, we want a 300 word report on why you purchased them and what you think about them.

    Pinball FX3 is on eShop? Nice. I'll definitely keep that in mind, I would like a better portable version of Doom Pinball.

    @MetManMas Mind you, there's a two-table DLC for free for a limited time (a few days more, I think?), after which it'll cost money. (I think it was FX3 and not the other pinball)

    Bleed was fun on PC, but I don't know how Enter the Gungeon works without a mouse for aiming. Thumbstick aiming is fine when there's unlimited ammo, but that's not the case with EtG.

    @Toelkki Nuclear Throne worked pretty well on PS4, imo, but I've also only played it there.

    @hiptanaka Ok, glad to hear there's no need for concern on that front. I just don't trust myself to aim in the right direction :-)
